Linux Tutorials Stats

Considering that a lot of hits are bots and not real humans, Linux gaming interest is not that bad!
Fallout 3 and Steam have received a lot of attention.

I don't have any Windows tutorials... cause most of the games run perfectly!
Bet you like hearing that Chris!

Actually if you wanted to do some tutorials for Windows, you could do some on games that hard to run on laptops or dedicated game servers.

Unfortunately there are already a LOT of sites dedicated to Windows tutorials...

Oh. I thought it was that since ChrisBard installed Linux no one uses Windows any more.... But your saying that some still do! But no one cares enough to learn how to play games or wright tutorials for windows...seems a pity...

Chris if you want to try and revive windows gaming, I'm sure we could find a place to post your efforts front page!

You are going to "get it" from Chrisbard mr smart alec...

It will be something on the lines of "Linucs needs game tutorials because Windows games always run... in fact they run so well that you won't ever need a tutorial"

Then you think we can cheer him up if we pretend that Windoze gaming is just about to make a come back...I hope so...it's been so long since windoze fans had anything that even resembled hope or even a happy thought to cling to...

You hang in there Chris... A new start is just around the corner....
